To obtain full benefits from ingesting garlic it must be raw and crushed. This is my method of processing. A tortilla press is used to remove the skins and do the initial crushing. The garlic is then put through a Champion Juicer. The juice and pulp are then mixed and placed in a freezing container. One cube is ingested daily. Benefits who knows?

10 August 2018 Hot Peppers

http://durgan.org/2018/August%202018/10%20August%202018%20Hot%20Peppers/HTML/ 10 August 2018 Hot Peppers

There are three most prolific hot pepper plants in the garden. The peppers ripen individually throughout the Summer. They are picked as they ripen and kept in the greenhouse to dry, then blended into a powder for table use. The heat does not diminish with time. I have some in a jar and it is as hot three years later as when first placed in the container.

The small patch of Indian Corn is 12 feet tall. This is excessive and probably indicates too much nitrogen. There are cobs forming so will determine at harvest if the height is detrimental to grain production. The stalks are healthy and good color.
